level international talks, president obama made a rare saturday night appearance to announce what just days ago seemed out of reach. a first step deal to stop iran's march toward a nuclear weapon. >> today, that diplomacy opened up a new path toward a world that is more secure. a future in which we can verify that iran's nuclear program is peaceful and that it cannot build a nuclear weapon. >> for the latest on what many are calling a historic breakthrough in relations between iran and the international community, we turn now to nbc's ayman muhadin. i want to start with reaction from the region and how angry are you sensing the israelis are at this deal? >> well, the israeli leadership has not been hiding its feelings at all. in fact, the prime minister you heard in the introduction was saying the world is more dangerous today as a result of this deal. other israeli leaders, senior leaders, including in the defense establishments and elsewhere expressed a tremendous amount of skepticism and criticized the deal. some have gone so far as to say israel reserves the right to keep all optio

, it was hurricane katrina. >> even "the new york times" is calling this obama's katrina which is great for george w. bush. >> if you bring it up at the white house, they reject that. expletives start flying around. >> we hate to say we told you so but we look like geniuses now. >> what is the republican plan? be careful. >> we have to concentrate, by the way, not on who we are against but what we're fighting for. >> i thought the republicans believed in the free enterprise system. >> it lets people keep the plans they like. >> the gentleman needs to read the bill. doesn't say that the insurance companies must sell the policies. >> we look like geniuses now. >>> all right. disrupters, we are going to get to it. we have a false narrative to pull apart. we saw more angst about the rollout of the affordable care act and apology from the president and republicans and democrats expressing outrage and frustration putting forward proposals to reinstate the junk insurance plans that allowed companies to bilk millions out of americans and then republicans decided this was their moment to go in for the kill.
in presidential elections. >> that's right. >> only shows up when obama's on the ballot. and let's be honest about it, the democratic nominee in virginia was not the most inspiring candidate. this was a candidate with dangerously poisonously high unfavorable numbers. so republicans should have won this election. not only did they fail to win the election, but when you look closer at the numbers you're seeing this pronounced gender gap. and you're seeing it's not just, you say the issue of abortion and ken's activism on abortion, but i think it's a wider range of cultural messages that ken cucinelli and that brand that alienates women voters and suburban educated female voters and you saw that as the reason why history was defied in virginia this week. >> one of the things i thought was interesting i mean, the writing for a lot of us, the writing seemed to be on the wall we expected that women would be energized and women would pay attention because it's been so ridiculous between vaginal ultrasounds over the last couple of years, just the litany of things and the level of conversation as you point
. just a few of the destructive tactics from the gop playbook since president obama took the oath of office. they've attempted to undermine his presidency at every turn from health care to judges to job creation. and you know? at times it felt like godzilla marching through washington leaving a path of destruction in the wake but this week democrats said, enough is enough. president obama and senate majority leader harry reid both went on offense this week calling out republicans for their shameless blocking of presidential nominees and their unabashed plans to take health care from tens of millions of americans. it's a call to arms for democrats and it is a warning to republicans who think they can just claim victory by just being against something. joining me now, ryan grim, washington bureau chief of "the huffington post and clarence page for "the chicago tribune." thank you to both of you for joining me. >> thank you. >> thank you, karen. >> i loved seeing harry reid get throughout and say enough is enough. you wrote a bit about this, ryan, sort of the going nuclear. tell us a
they offered senator reid. he accepted it. that's what they offered president obama. he accepted it. we accepted it. the only people that didn't accept the house republican budget number were the house republican members. so we could have avoided that. every day we would go out to the steps, to the floor, in letters and all the rest, 200 members signing, open up -- first, don't shut down. then, open up. but it's important to note that when we did finally open up, over 60% of the republican caucus voted to stay shut down and to default. over 60%. 144 republicans voted no on opening up government and ending the default threat. so that's really important. that's what we're facing when we go to the budget table. >> do we think that that has bolstered paul ryan in terms of his position and feeling that he is imboldin -- emboldened in hi desire for more cuts and now we're hearing this question of whether or not revenues will be on the table. >> first of all, it's important to note paul ryan voted to keep the government shut down and to default on the full faith and credit. he did not vote to
that followed. >> is this obama's political katrina? >> republicans are having a field day with the president's problems with obama care. >> we all look like geniuses now. >> if we just sit around and high five each other for being right about this, that's a mistake. >> the problem with katrina was apparent indifference. one thing you can't hold against the president was indifference to health care. >> the fact of the matter is this is a rollout problem. this is not a values problem. >> we say wisconsin through the nose. >> describe for me the ideal republican presidential candidate in 2016. >> i think it's got to be an outsider. i think both the presidential and vice presidential nominees should be either be a former or current governor. that rules out marco rubio, rules out ted cruz, rules out rand paul. >> wisconsin. >> 50 years after jfk's assassination -- >> we have this legacy of public service. >> we remember him because he asked us to be better. he said each of us can give more, can do more. >> we've got plenty to cover in the world of politics this afternoon. first, we're continuing
to the streets to demand fair wages. president obama and democrats in congress have proposed an increase in the federal minimum wage and a number of states and localities are putting it to a vote with more measures expected on ballots across the country for the 2014 elections. so far, speaker boehner and house republicans oppose an increase. despite the fact that 7 in 10 americans support it. and recently, congressman paul ryan attempted to pivot to talking about poverty issues trying to show a kind of softer side. but as we're likely to see in the budget discussions, he can talk the talk but his policies will not walk the walk. joining me now to discuss this ever growing war on the american worker is the cycle's krystal ball, a contributor and rashad robinson. thank you all for being here. >> thank you. >> thanks for having us. >> krystal, you were there yesterday at one of the protests going on around the country and give us a sense of what it was like on the ground and, you know, we have heard varying versions from those who support walmart and those who support the workers. >> yeah.
, you know, the republicans, they shut the government down. although you could say that the obama care conversation has kind of distracted from that. and that democrats want to use that sort of leverage against the gop to kind of put the pressure on, to get the minimum wage done, to maybe even get enda done which i think that's going to be even tougher. it sounds like you're saying there's not going to be any kind of leverage. >> it's hard to have leverage if you can't even get it to the floor. >> there's that. and john boehner has got no problem saying, i'm not even going to put it on the floor. and blaming other people. the other thing jonathan, we've got going next week, we've got the second round of the budget talks. a great quote from patty murray, who is leading the efforts for democrats from the senate side. she said in a piece this weekend, quote, i taught preschool. you don't walk into a class with 4-year-olds without a direction of where you're going to go. so she clearly is walking in like she's got her plan of what she's going to do. but paul ryan has a plan, too. it does n
